Personal from Kaukab Siddique, Editor of New Trend
March 21, 2009: A date to remember in our family life.
Love, Marriage and Hadith: A Triumph for my Sister
My sister is a highly educated woman and very devoted to Allah
Almighty. Unfortunately we disagree most of the time. I have
become wary of getting into arguments with her about Islam
because she is very persistent and will not lose a debate
inspite of my considerable skills at argumentation.
A few years back her life was shattered by the cataclysmic death
of her college going son in a car accident during a storm on the
highway which swept him away along with two of his friends.
The tragedy changed my sister's life in strange ways which
indicates how mysterious is the power of Allah. My sister is now
a constant visitor to her Beloved's house in the far away city of
Makka. Sometimes she goes there to spend the last ten days of
Ramadan, sometimes for the lesser pilgrimage [Umra] and sometimes
with the tumult of millions hungering for salvation [the Hajj].
Along the way she makes new friends, the hijabi types, in
South Africa and in the mosques of Damascus.
She is constantly preaching the spiritual message of the Hadith
of the greatest of all men, Muhammad, peace be on him. I often
wonder how a highly westernized woman, immersed in developments
in the medical sciences, could change so much and accept the
deeply traditional wisdom enshrined in the Hadith.
Now comes my sister's greatest triumph. She carried out her
American-born daughter's wedding according to the Sunnah! She and
her husband invited relatives, friends and acquaintances to their
daughter's wedding. The young man who married my niece accepted
Islam and learned its basic teachings most conscientiously. [Both
are medical graduates, just about.] The task before my sister,
on the day of her daughter's wedding, was to keep both her Muslim
and non-Muslim friends happy and yet not violate the Sunnah:
quite a task and quite an accomplishment!
The nikah was performed by an 'Alim from Lebanon.
He spoke well about love and tranquility in the words of the
Qur'an. Then my sister taught the large audience what she calls
the LOVE Hadith of the Prophet, pbuh. These authentic Hadith
indicate how Muhammad, pbuh, expressed his love for his wife
'Ayesha, r.a.. All these ceremonies from Hadith easily replaced
the jahiliyya ceremonies of our national cultures. Members
of the audience made the same symbolic offerings of love and then
added a few dollars of SADAQA to help the needy. Finally my sister
reminded the assembled guests about the miracle of Zam Zam water
which was given to a woman [Hajira, r.a.] who would not accept
defeat in the vast expanses of the Arabian desert..
The Imam from Lebanon was extremely humble and finally [I suspect
at the instigation of my sister] urged me to lead the maghrib
prayers out on the lawn immediately after sunset. I tried to get
out of it by saying that I had forgotten my prayer cap in my car,
at which he took off his own cap and gave it to me. [While we
prayed, the non-Muslim part of the audience watched the glow of
the sunset, a beauty from Allah which no artist can match.]
A non-Muslim lady at the gathering asked me, with reference to
the bridegroom: Why is it that those Christians who marry Muslims
embrace Islam. Why can't they remain Christian? I told her that
Muslims love Jesus, pbuh, and Mary, pbuh, so by embracing Islam,
Christians do not lose Jesus, pbuh. They keep Jesus and Mary,
peace be on them, but they gain Muhammad, pbuh, the Seal of the
Prophets. So, they win everything and do not lose anything. She
said; Now I know what's going on!
I have an envious fear that my sister is moving ahead of me in
Islamic spirituality. I merely talk and write about the Beloved.
She visits the House of the Beloved in Makka! What goes on there
remains a mystery between her and the Beloved.
Personal Note #2:
Ten Year Old Says, she won't Write to an American Soldier in
Iraq: They are Occupiers
Maitha is ten years old and lives in Greensboro, North Carolina.
Recently her school teacher asked her class to write a letter of
support to a soldier in Iraq. Maitha refused to write. The teacher
wanted to know why. Her reply: They are occupiers. I cannot
support an occupier. The teacher was stunned. [This is a public
school.] She called Maitha's father. He is Imam Badi Ali of the
Islamic Center of the Triad. He explained to the teacher that our
children know that American forces should not be in Iraq and a
child should not be asked to support an army of occupation.
[Comment by Kaukab Siddique: We have so many Islamic schools in
America, yet we do not hear of any young people condemning the
policies of the White House or the Pentagon. Youth should always
be in the forefront of the struggle. Unfortunately they are being
taught a SANITIZED Islam: the "five pillars" Islam: Not the Islam
of Muhammad Mustafa, pbuh, which begins with "La," the rejection
of false gods. We need more children like Maitha. She could go to
a public school and speak the truth. Yet we have lackey
organizations setting up Islamic schools and taking Muslim
children to the Pentagon and teaching them to be proud of the
centers of oppression and war.]
Lest we Forget
Bush to U.S. Children: Collect Pennies for Afghan Children
by Sis. Sofia [New York city] [The writer is a teacher of English
in New York.]
This poem (which I wrote after 9.11) was written as a satire against then
President W. Bush (the poem is using his "voice") and representing
Americans' macho mentality (represented in their slogan "We are number
one"--something we don't hear anymore now) that was prevalent at the
time in the U.S.A while many "made in the USA" bombs were being
dropped over Afghanistan. The poem has used actual news items as part
of the text. In other words, I have not made up any of the facts
mentioned in it. (It's interesting to see how Afghans continue to suffer
today what they did in 2001). The satirical twist given to them are
mine. I think this poem is more in sync. with the overall purpose of
Come children one and all
Come gather your pennies together
for your penny harvest
to save the children of Afghanistan
and sure death
this winter strong.
Our bombs killed many
too hungry and too poor to run away.
Our bombs that rained from the skies.
But they deserved them all!
For we are strong!
And we can't be beat!
Even our food from the skies
knocked them dead
Even as they slept in their terrorist beds.
Tons hurling at lightening speed.
We were on their side.
They didn't need any graves.
Their bodies torn to shreds
Even as they slept.
For everything that moved had to die.
Go meet your Allah in hell
We told them.
Even as we told them
how much we loved them.
Come little children
Do your piece now.
Convince one and all
how much we all love them.
Come collect your pennies
to repair their land
torn to shreds
by our billion dollar bombs.
You see our might and their plight?
They turn to us for mercy instead of the Lord!
We can't be beat!
Yes, we know we should have turned the other cheek
But that's only for public consumption.
We'll let Hollywood convince them
in sixty second ads
that we meant no harm.
That we were out to get only two
But got twenty thousand instead.
Some of them were only friendly fire, we said.
Now we must clean up the streets of Kabul and Kandahar.
Pick up the dead bodies--and all those bombs,
landmines and all....
Come little children, let's not disappoint
the children of Afghanistan.
Let's send them Christmas trees and teddy bears
because they need our help.
Come count your pennies little children of America.
"Mommy, why do the children in Afghanistan need my pennies?"
"Because the President said so!" she said.
In memory of millions of innocent lives lost and destroyed in
Afghanistan by acts of aggression of a foreign power--the U.S.A.
Pakistan: Hoping for Rule of Law
by New Trend's Pak observer
Tens of thousands of Pakistanis came out to support the lawyers' movement and against the "disqualification" of Muslim League leader Nawaz Sharif. The Zardari government was determined to crush them. Then came the phone calls from Hillary Clinton. America did not want to see the Pakistani elites fighting each other because that would help the forces standing for Jihad and Shar'ia.
There is hope now that the reinstated Chief Justice will right the most blatant wrongs of the Generals, but it remains to be seen ....
Photo below shows the Islamic women leaders of Jamia Hafsa being told that they cannot meet the Chief Justice. These are the most radical and activist women in Pakistan. They wear the complete burqa-hijab to signify total rejection of Anglo-American hegemony. American Muslims should not be influenced into thinking that this burqa is a sign of acceptance of male dominance. These women bow before none but Allah.
Jamia Hafsa, named after the daughter of Caliph Umar, r.a., was destroyed by commando units of the Pakistani army. When will Musarraf and General Kayani be brought to trial for these horrendous crimes against Islam?
Africa: Background Story
Mass Conversions to Islam in Rawanda: [A non-Muslim
Jihad Is Taught as 'Struggle to Heal'
By Emily Wax [Excerpted.]
Washington Foreign Post Service
Many Rwandans are converting to Islam after Muslims hid them
during the genocide. (Emily Wax - The Washington Post)
RUHENGERI, Rwanda -- The villagers with their forest green head
wraps and forest green Korans arrived at the mosque on a rainy
Sunday afternoon for a lecture for new converts. There was one
main topic: jihad.
They found their seats and flipped to the right page. Hands flew
in the air. People read passages aloud. And the word jihad --
holy struggle -- echoed again and again through the dark,
April 6, 1994, the first day of the state-sponsored genocide in
which ethnic Hutu extremists killed 800,000 minority Tutsis and
"We have our own jihad, and that is our war against ignorance
between Hutu and Tutsi. It is our struggle to heal," said Saleh
Habimana, the head mufti of Rwanda. "Our jihad is to start
respecting each other and living as Rwandans and as Muslims."
Since the genocide, Rwandans have converted to Islam in huge
numbers. Muslims now make up 14 percent of the 8.2 million people
here in Africa's most Catholic nation, twice as many as before
the killings began.
Many converts say they chose Islam because of the role that some
Catholic and Protestant leaders played in the genocide. Human
rights groups have documented several incidents in which
Christian clerics allowed Tutsis to seek refuge in churches, then
surrendered them to Hutu death squads, as well as instances of
Hutu priests and ministers encouraging their congregations to
kill Tutsis. Today some churches serve as memorials to the many
people slaughtered among their pews.
Four clergymen are facing genocide charges at the U.N.-created
International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, and last year in
Belgium, the former colonial power, two Rwandan nuns were
convicted of murder for their roles in the massacre of 7,000
Tutsis who sought protection at a Benedictine convent.
In contrast, many Muslim leaders and families are being honored
for protecting and hiding those who were fleeing.
"I know people in America think Muslims are terrorists, but for
Rwandans they were our freedom fighters during the genocide,"
said Jean Pierre Sagahutu, 37, a Tutsi who converted to Islam
from Catholicism after his father and nine other members of his
family were slaughtered. "I wanted to hide in a church, but that
was the worst place to go. Instead, a Muslim family took me. They
saved my life."
Sagahutu said his father had worked at a hospital where he was
friendly with a Muslim family. They took Sagahutu in, even though
they were Hutus. "I watched them pray five times a day. I ate
with them and I saw how they lived," he said. "When they pray,
Hutu and Tutsi are in the same mosque. There is no difference. I
needed to see that."
Islam has long been a religion of the downtrodden. In the Middle
East and South Asia, the religion has had a strong focus on
outreach to the poor and tackling social ills by banning alcohol
and encouraging sexual modesty. In the United States,
Malcolm X used a form of Islam to encourage economic and
racial empowerment among blacks.
Muslim leaders say they have a natural constituency in Rwanda,
where AIDS and poverty have replaced genocide as the most
daunting problems. "Islam fits into the fabric of our society. It
helps those who are in poverty. It preaches against behaviors
that create AIDS. It offers education in the Koran and Arabic
when there is not a lot of education being offered," said
Habimana, the chief mufti. "I think people can relate to Islam.
They are converting as a sign of appreciation to the Muslim
community who sheltered them during the genocide."
While Western governments worry that the growth of Islam carries
with it the danger of militancy, there are few signs of militant
Islam in Rwanda. Nevertheless, some government officials quietly
express concern that some of the mosques receive funding from
Saudi Arabia, whose dominant Wahhabi sect has been embraced by
militant groups in other parts of the world. They also worry that
high poverty rates and a traumatized population make Rwanda the
perfect breeding ground for Islamic extremism.
But Nish Imiyimana, an imam here in Ruhengeri, about 45 miles
northwest of Kigali, the capital, contends: "We have enough of
our own problems. We don't want a bomb dropped on us by America.
We want American NGOs [nongovernmental organizations] to come and
build us hospitals instead."
"The Catholic church has a problem after genocide," said the Rev.
Jean Bosco Ntagugire, who works at Kigali churches. "The trust
has been broken. We can't say, 'Christians come back.' We have to
hope that happens when faith builds again."
To help make that happen, the Catholic church has started to
offer youth sports programs and camping trips, Ntagugire said.
But Muslims are also reaching out, even forming women's groups
that provide classes on child care and being a mother.
At a recent class here, hundreds of women dressed in red, orange
and purple head coverings gathered in a dark clay building. They
talked about their personal struggle, or jihad, to raise their
children well. And afterward, during a lunch of beans and chicken
legs, they ate heartily and shared stories about how Muslims
saved them during the genocide.
"If it weren't for the Muslims, my whole family would be dead,"
said Aisha Uwimbabazi, 27, a convert and mother of two children.
"I was very, very thankful for Muslim people during the genocide.
I thought about it and I really felt it was right to change."
[Editor of New Trend says: We condemn the use of words like
"wahhabi." There is no such sect. Also, the numbers of those
killed in Rwanda are grossly exaggerated by the U.S. media for
Zionist purposes. It was bad but not like what they say.]
Behind the news: The Ugly reality
Prostitution in Bangladesh: Early Marriage Illegal,
Who is behind this Catalcysmic Program to Undermine Bangladesh?
by Dr. Firoz Kamal [Bangladesh]
Exploitation, subjugation and physical annihilation against
weaker nations are not the only crimes of the European
colonialists. In Islamic countries, they went further to rock
their moral fabrics that were built through centuries.
Institutionalised practice of such immorality in the form of
prostitution is such an immoral colonial legacy in Bangladesh.
They nurtured and sponsored such a vice as a profession. These
colonialists descended on that Muslim land from a different
social, cultural and moral milieu. Secularisation left them
bereft of moral values that could prevent them from
institutionalisation of such a sin. Their hedonist lust took them
to promiscuity, homosexuality, prostitution and other perversions
that were unknown at least in the public arena. These were indeed
severely punishable offence in any Muslim land. Unfettered sex
was not a crime in their value system, but in Bangladesh they did
not have institutional premise to put that in practice. Hence,
they launched prostitution not only as a trade, but also
They established western cultural islands in almost all
cities, especially in capitals, ports, and district and
sub-district townships. They raised them as safe havens for free
sex, gambling and other immoralities; and started franchising
such sins in every corner of the country. The government
patronage helped such vice spills over even to interiors. The
trade also developed consumers amidst natives; the feudal, the
zaminder, the business elite and those who were adequately taken
away from religion also joined the rank. Later on, the
colonialists deployed this sin as a tool to increase their
income, their introduced toll on it. To make the Muslims morally
corrupt and powerless, the colonialist had a more nefarious
design. They targeted the institutions, which were indispensable
for Islam's survival. These are the social venues that nurture
the desired norms, values and behaviour necessary for developing
a value-based Muslim society. Mosque, Islamic schools (madrasa)
and family are such institutions, Islam sustains as a way of life
to cater services for the mankind by means of these organs. If
these institutions turn non-functional, Islam as a way of life
can not exist either.
Dismantling Islamic institutions was therefore the ulterior
motive of the anti- Islamic forces in all times. Prostitution has
been institutionalised by the secular forces to work with such
purpose. It was introduced to destroy moral and family values-
the core essence of an Islamic community. Besides, they
introduced secular education to foster values that are compatible
with the western vice and detrimental to Islamic faith. Education
itself is a tool of guidance, the colonialists used it to guide
people towards its own way, and much away from Islam. Cultural
conversion was the profound outcome; and the new converts became
the archprotectors of the corrupt colonial legacy. This is why,
after the departure of colonialists, prostitution could continue
in a Muslim country like Bangladesh with out any support from its
The native converts not only faithfully did the job; but also
made those vice more robust and pervasive. The disease was
endemic in the past, but now has scaled up to an epidemic
proportion. Such punishable moral crime now draws full
recognition from the secular law, the judiciary, the media and
the government. The perpetrators are now labelled as sex worker.
In Bangladesh, de-Islamisation is a major secularist agenda.
Secular education, media, cinema, theatre, Internet - all are
working as parts of a single package to do the job. They are
being used not only to disrupt the societal norm, and but also to
undermine the moral thresholds. The Islamic values, norms and
practices that were developed through centuries are now facing
constant cultural aggression. Promoting prostitution is now a
major project of the global anti-Islamic coalition. They find it
a better weapon to fight Islamic revival. They know that sowing
vices in public life is the sure way of reaping corrupt faith.
Culmination of such public sin in an individual renders him or
her morally irreparable. Allah (SWT) has repeatedly revealed in
the Holy Qur'an, He does not guide a sinner (faasiq). Hence, by
joining prostitution or extra-marital sex, life takes an
irreparable turn towards anti-Islam.
The most trusted accomplices of the devils are thus produced
through such institutions of sins. This is why promotion of
prostitution or free sex becomes the key strategy of the
anti-Islamic forces in Muslim countries. To supplement this evil
design, the Bangladesh government has put hurdles against lawful
sex and liberalises the avenues of illicit sex. To reduce the
population growth, the law fixes the minimum age of marriage at
18. It brought debacle to the growth of moral health. Islam did
not prescribe such a marital age. Rebellion against Allah's law
went further to make illicit sex no crime if committed with the
consent of both the parties.
But marriage before the age of 18 has been made unlawful, hence a
criminal offence. Law thus made permissible sex impermissible,
and permits the illicit sex. In Islam, marriage is an
important institution; fostering sound family and Islamic
community is impossible without it. If is it delayed or
restrained, the growth of Islamic values meets disasters. In
Bangladesh, the importance of such an institution has been
undermined only to reduce the growth of population. Thousands of
government and non-government workers are distributing condoms
and pills from door to door to reduce birth of the unwanted child,
but none is there to tell that extra-marital sex is a great sin,
and it jeopardises the growth of public morale and a healthy
Muslim community. Reducing extra-marital sex is not a government
agenda, since it delays marriage and reduces childbirth,
extra-marital sex is rather tolerated with conspicuous silence.
Alongside the permissive government policy, the USAID – the prime
donor of population programme in Bangladesh, has opened numerous
clinics to clear womb of the unwed and the unwanted pregnant.
Hence a silent genocide is going on with a full swing. Although
it not permissible by law, the law enforcing agencies keep blind
eye on this, as if they have seen nothing of that kind. Since
marriage is labelled a powerful tool for population growth, the
Family Planning practitioners considers prostitution and other
devices of extra-marital sex as convenient
This is why if any religious group raises their voice against
such vice, the whole battalion of the USAID supported Family
Planning NGOs takes position in the street. Such posture of GOs
and NGOs has strong moral implication, it has already damaged the
behavioural norms. The symptoms have already started giving
awful signals. One of the UN's population experts recently
revealed a report that more than half of the Bangladeshi people
experience sex before marriage. Is it not horrendous for a
Muslims nation? It testifies how the morality is plummeting
towards an abysmal end. But how could a country that nurtures,
protects and legalises prostitution, and restricts marriage
escape such moral disaster?

Taking Pakistani "Democracy" with a Pinch of Salt+Canada
Admits Bush but Bars Galloway+China Worries about U.S. Finances
A mini-victory for Pakistani people! Chief Justice Iftikhar
Chaudhry of the Pakistan Supreme Court has been re-instated and
so are the other remaining dismissed judges. However, all the
same, as a Pakistani-Canadian, I feel highly disturbed as
basically the Lawyers' and Civil Society movement, to restore the
dignity and independence of Pakistan's judiciary, have been
effectively "hijacked" by the scheming politicians.
There are already pressures on the Chief Justice that he should
not open files pertaining to the infamous "National
Reconciliation Order (NRO)", the corruption cases, invloving the
military and the feudal elites and the "disappeared persons". If
Justice Chaudhry yields to these pressures really nothing will
have been achieved!
"The Gazette" of Montreal in its March 18, 2009 editorial may
term the reinstatment of Justice Chaudhry as "victory for the
rule of law" but really from my standopoint it is no victory. If
the corrupt politicians of the ruling and opposition parties and
the corrupt feudal lords and greedy rich Pakistanis will
have their way, expecting any improvement in Pakistan affairs
tantamounts to dreaming in colors! It is unfortunate that even
after more than one year of civilian rule in Pakistan, nothing
has changed. The economic, social and security conditions have
in fact deteriorated fast and the politicians do not seem to care
at all. Perhaps, Pakistan needs a Long March of Peoples'
Republic of China kind. Who will start this Long March?
Undoubtedly, this will entail a lot of sacrifice. The question
is, are the Pakistanis ready for such a sacrifice, without any
preparation and a charismatic leader?
George Galloway, the British MP, was supposed to start his
public speaking tour from March 23, 2009. Unfortunately, however
he has been refused entry into Canada by Jason Kenney, the
Canadian Immigration and Citizenship Minister. The organizers of
the George Galloway events, however, seem to be a determined lot.
Worse come to worst, it seems, they have decided on a video-link,
so that the already sold-out crowds in Canada, can listen to the
British Member of Parliament, on the subject of, "Resisting War
from Gaza to Kandahar".
At this particular juncture when 116 Canadian soldiers have
already been killed and many more have been maimed and mutilated,
in this endless and non-productive war, we need to have pacifists
like George Galloway right in our midst, to expose the real
imperialist aims of the invaders in Afghanistan. Will the crafty
military strategists and insensitive weapons-producer stand up
and say that they are there in Afghanistan for the long haul and
really for reasons other than development and improvement of the
The March 18, 2009 issue of daily, The Gazette, Montreal,
carries a brief report on the "shoe-throwing" protest of the
Calgarians, on the occasion of $400-plate luncheon for
invitation-only crowd, of business and oil executives. Obviously
and understandably, they gave a standing ovation when George Bush
was introduced. He was frequently interrupted and applauded
during his relatively brief speech, in relation to the hefty
payment of thousands of dollars made to him! Although, a
two-mandate President, who apparently came with the
majority-endorsement of the American people, his highly selective
participants were made to undergo a rigorous security check,
which involved empyting of pockets and purses and a thorough
scanning, by hand-held metal detectors!
In his mid-March Press Conference Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao
expressed his worries about the $1 trillion Chinese holdings
in the US Treasury Bills. Considering the extremely
uncertain economy of the USA, the Chinese Premier announced that
China will pursue a policy of diversification in future when it
comes to its foreign exchange holdings. One wonders what will
happen if tomorrow countries like China, Saudi Arabia and Arab
Emirates, to name only a few, decide to withdraw from the various
American Investment institutions and diversify to other relatively
secure places. It is a sign of the times that Wen Jiabao had to
call on the Obama administration to "maintain its good credit, to
honour its promises and to guarantee the safety of China's assets".
While Chinese socialism may not be dead yet, the former Canadian
Bank governor, David Dodge has already expressed his opinion
about Western capitalism, that its very face may change after
the recession is over.
Before the 'Human Rights Tribunal': Zundel Hearing in Toronto
Mark Weber -- Institute for Historical Review (2000)
Now into its fifth year, a little-known legal dispute in Canada
with important international implications for Internet freedom of

Occupied Iraq after Six Years: March 21, 2009
Obama Must Bring the Defeated Armies home for the Sake
by Kaukab Siddique
Almost 150,000 U.S. troops are still in Iraq or more correctly
are STUCK in Iraq. Bush tried his damndest to defeat and destroy
the Islamic resistance in Iraq but failed miserably. For almost a
year now U.S. troops have been cooped up in their fancy military
bases in Iraq. There have been only a handful of U.S. military
operations with little results. Hence U.S. military losses have
fallen and this reduction in losses is presented to the American
public as the "stabilization" of Iraq. In fact Iraq is so
unstable [which means it is in Islamic hands] that the U.S.
installed al-Maliki regime has demanded that the U.S. military
must stay in Iraq at least till the END of 2011 after which, for
all we know, a further extension may be needed.
American voters supported Obama so that his fresh face may be
used to bring the occupation armies back home in a "face saving"
kind of way, but the situation in Iraq is so bad that face saving
is difficult. The DEFEAT is becoming clearer, although guerrilla
forces cannot win against the firepower of a superpower in a
The configuration of Iraq today is as follows:
Bush's policy was that of mass destruction, genocide and mass
arrests. It didn't work because of Islamic power and faith.
According to U.S. sources, at this time 23,000 Iraqi supporters
of al-Qaida are in a concentration camp set up south of Baghdad.
Another 17,000 Iraqi opponents of al-Maliki are in prison camps
run by Shi'ites. With 40,000 people kept imprisoned, the U.S.
claims that it has installed "democracy" in Iraq.
The western provinces are in the hands of Saddam Hussein's Ba'ath
Party [now Islamized.] Opportunists among tribal chiefs around
Baghdad and in Anbar province have made deals with the U.S. These
tribal [very backward] chiefs have driven out al-Qaida in return
for non-interference by the U.S. along with quantities of dollars.
Mosul, Diyala, and the northwest are in the hands of
al-Qaida-in-Iraq [with help from Islamic volunteers from
The South all the way down from Baghdad is in Shi'ite hands. The
Shi'ites of Iraq are seen as the dregs of Shi'ism who welcomed
the invading armies and sealed the fate of Shi'ism in the modern
era through their treachery and violation of the teachings of Ali,
r.a., and Imam Hussain. The Shi'ites are of several categories:
CIA agents such as Nuri al-Maliki.
Iranian agents such as al-Hakim.
Illiterate sectarians, such as al-Sadr [who was used by the U.S.
to carry out ethnic cleansing of the Sunnis in Baghdad.]
Small groups of Shi'ites dealing directly with Iran and seen as a
serious problem by the U.S.
Baghdad itself is subdivided into zones controlled by al-Sadr,
Saddam's Ba'ath and al-Qaida-in-Iraq..
Kurdish enclaves in the north, very westernized and in part
linked to Israel.
Iraq and the new patterns of Resistance: It was
unthinkable for Bush and his Jewish advisers that Iraqis would
resist beyond a month or two. More than a million Iraqis had died
during the decade of sanctions. The Iraqi army was poorly armed
and had no air force to support it. Bush knew that Iraq could not
stand up to the power of an American armada. It would be a "cake
walk" thought Bush [and his Jewish and Israeli friends]. Here is
what went wrong [and was traced only by New Trend right from
Today, America's generals realize that the game is up. U.S.
troops have to be brought home to stop the drain of ONE BILLION
dollars every week. Hence Obama was elected to save America
Saddam Hussain had embraced Islam and decided to accept martyrdom
rather than surrender.
He knew that his army was no match for that of America, so he
organized for guerrilla warfare.
In 22 regions of Iraq, Saddam stored massive supplies of basic
explosives and small arms with huge quantities of ammunition.
In his last years, he urged the Imams throughout Iraq to prepare
the people for Jihad. He told the Imams to speak as they wished
in the mosques as long as they did not call for his overthrow.
He ordered members of the Ba'ath party to study Islam and prepare
for battle. He praised the Taliban's resistance to the U.S. as a
good example for Iraq.,
'Shock and Awe' was meant to kill Saddam. The U.S. used huge
bombs but failed to kill him [as they had failed 33 times before
during the sanctions regime].
Even when Iraq was occupied in 2003, Saddam did not surrender. He
went underground and continued to coordinate the resistance. His
sons and grandson went down fighting to the last.
Saddam was captured but refused to compromise. He was a changed
man. He would come to the puppet court set up by the U.S. [to
"try" him] with the Qur'an in his hand. From the court, with his
life on the line, he urged the Iraqi people to fight on and never
compromise with occupation. He went to his Creator, with the
kalima of Islam on his lips. This was indeed true martyrdom;
purified by his own blood, Saddam stands today as the symbol of
Iraqi, Arab and Islamic resistance forever!
As the resistance continued, tens of thousands of Islamic
volunteers from all over Africa, the Middle East and South Asia
entered Iraq to help the Islamic resistance. Thus emerged
al-Qaida-in-Iraq which put fear into the hearts of America's
elite military forces. Hundreds of martyrdom operators ['suicide
bombers'] flung themselves at America's tanks and at the bunkers
of the Shi'ite allies of the U.S.
Bush's response was brutal in the extreme. Entire Islamic cities
were wiped out, among them large areas of Ramadi, Fallujah,
Haditha Tal Afar and Baghdad itself. Hundreds of Islamic schools
and mosques were smashed. To humiliate the forces of Islam,
mosques were used as camping grounds and urinals by the Americans.
Air strikes were used if an al-Qaida fighter was seen entering
his home. American troops smashed their way into tens of
thousands of Iraqi homes looking for al-Qaida's Islamic fighters.
Pakistani Islamic Leader Notices Implications of U.S. Threat
of Drone Attacks in Baluchistan
LAHORE, Mar 18: Jamaat-e-Islami Secretary General Syed
Munawar Hasan has expressed serious concerns over the reports
that Washington was considering drone attacks in Balochistan.
In a statement on Wednesday issued by JI Media Cell, Munawar
Hasan said it shows that Washington is conspiring to destroy
Pakistan completely and it is high time Islamabad must come out
of the US-led alliance in war against terror. He demanded that a
comprehensive policy on national defense should be formulated
immediately in the national assembly and should be implemented in
letter and spirit.
Munawar said a military dictator has pushed the country on the
brink of destruction by forcing the country to join the US war
against Muslims. He said people had voted for the democratic
government setting up after the Feb 18 elections only to reverse
all policies of Gen Musharraf but the so-called democratic rulers
proved themselves more loyal to Washington than the military
dictator. They not only allowed drone attacks on Pakistan but
also sent Pakistan army to Swat and other areas of Fata.
He said now that Swat peace deal brought ceased fire in NWFP,
Washington is trying to spread the ugly war to Balochistan on the
pretext of Taliban. He demanded that Islambad should raise strong
protest with Washington on such moves endangering country's
security and solidarity, otherwise Washington could push this war
to Sindh and Punjab also.
March 19, 2009: Palestinian mother calls for God's wrath on
Mubarak at the fence put up by Egypt's dictator Mubarak to make
sure that Israel succeeds in squeezing the people of Gaza. The
Egyptian tyrant, a kafir with a Muslim name, is Israel's greatest
supporter second only to King Abdullah of Jordan. The Zionists
are arrogant because their agents are installed in Muslim lands.
